Kefalonia Local Specialties

The cuisine of the Ionian Islands is delectable and healthy while strongly influenced mostly by the Venetians. The distinctive flavors and scents, the traditional local products, the imaginative combinations and the genuine love of the locals for their gastronomy lead to the creation of some of the most famous Greek dishes.
